stand up paddleboarding better on Maui or Kauai

I will be visiting Maui and Kauai at the end of Oct-beginning of Nov. Where would be the best place to try paddleboarding or kayaking this time of year?

I have no idea on Maui, but we did paddle boarding today in Hanalei. If you drive all the way down Weke Rd to the pier there is a company that rents paddle boards right there. They also give lessons.

Kauai has some great paddleboarding spots - Hanalei, Anini, Kalapaki are the ones that come to mind first. Maui has at least as many good spots and probably more. I can't imagine the paddleboarding conditions are better on one island over the other.

Kayaking I'd give the thumbs up to Kauai though. I don't know if you're talking ocean kayaking or inland but Kauai has some great inland waterways kayaking that you won't find on Maui.

Kayaking the ocean or paddleboarding, it makes no difference which island. Maui has no rivers, thus doesn't offer inland kayaking!!
